Early Modern Alphabet: L

I haven't blogged in ages because I've been busy, but I'd like to start doing a few posts again so I thought I'd start with something easy :) I did have a grand idea (once upon a time) of blogging the Early Modern Alphabet using letters that I come across in early modern texts weekly. Not sure I can commit to it with such regularity but I will start doing some again as I find them. I came across this little gem today and it reminded me.

Is it a lion? Is it flower/person hybrid? Who knows?! I like to think that it's L for Lion. It probably isn't though...
